By talking I mean expressing my deepest thoughts, talking about what I'm going through, sharing issues that are worrying me with someone. If you ask me how I am, my … Continue reading Learning how to talk…
Since last week's post was quite deep, I thought I'd go a little lighter this week :-). Growing up, I was constantly told how lucky I was that I didn't have siblings, or how spoilt I must have been, because those are the main two factors that sum up being an only child apparently lol. … Continue reading 11 life realities only an only child can truly understand…
I wasn't going to publish a post this week as I had been struggling all week to think of a topic to write about, I didn't want to put out just anything because I don't like producing substandard work. That was the plan...until a 'pleasant' phone call I had this morning... So I was telling … Continue reading Learn to celebrate you!
This question is slowly becoming the most annoying question ever...almost more annoying than last year's question 'how is wedding planning going?'. It's the general conversation starter for most people that interact with me and I don't always know how to answer it. It's almost like when someone asks 'How are you?'

Making the decision to move back to Nigeria from London wasn't too stressful seeing as I had previously lived in Abuja and Port Harcourt so it really wasn't anything new, but being a 'returnee' (as we're called now lol) I thought of the amenities I'd miss obviously. Not the 'seamless' healthcare system, constant electricity or … Continue reading So I Went To… Faie’s Pastries
You're probably thinking you've seen this over and over again but the truth is, no one experience is the same. During my wedding planning, I’d try and find solace in a recently married friend when I got stressed to see if they can empathise and what they did in that situation but it was never exactly … Continue reading Nine things I learnt from my planning my wedding…abroad!
The thing that really confuses me is when people are in a long distance relationship just for the sake of being in one or without a clear end goal i.e. what country or city will we both end up in, because it can't be a long distance relationship forever right? If and when I start a … Continue reading Long Distance relationships with a goal
In true new year's eve style, most people put up these lonnnggg epistles on Instagram and Facebook reflecting on 2016, talking about how amazing or terrible it was and how they vowed to be better people in 2017 with a long list of resolutions to follow and goals to achieve. So my question to you … Continue reading Still ‘New Year, New You’?
I've been coming to Abuja since 2008 every year, lived in Abuja for a year and a half from 2011, frequented the city constantly after I left, yet my first time ever stepping foot in the Arts and Craft village was last week Friday! I didn't even know the place existed until a couple of … Continue reading So I went to…Arts & Craft Village, Abuja
